The Story
4 months ago

Several days ago when friends and I were handing out hot meals and masks to people in the Klong Toei Slum Community, I saw first hand how the need for testing on covid is critical in this community.

When people are very closely packed together as in Klong Toei. What happens when Covid-19 enters?

According to the World news, 500 new covid cases in Singapore, the last two days have now been confirmed in several clusters of migrant workers living in the same community. The same potential power keg exist in Bangkok and we the people have the power to make a change now. Not only for their sake but Bangkok’s sake. Don’t hesitate to help be sure anyone needs a Covid test, gets one.

The Thai government is brilliant in helping Thai citizens free if someone is tested positive for covid. However that initial testing fee is paid by the person getting tested. If they are positive then it will be reimbursed. If negative, then it's the person who was tested expense. This is a HUGE issue.

I saw no symptoms of coughing or anybody ill when we were there. When I asked a community leader if someone did show signs, what would happen ? She could not fathom any individual having the 3,000 Baht necessary to be tested. She said she can't imagine they would be able to be tested. This project is for people who should get tested but can't afford it.

I’m feeling what I think a lot of people are experiencing right now: I wanted to make an impact during this terrible time— this will make a impact not on only on their lives but all of Thailand as well. Every baht up to 100,000, Sunrise Tacos will match. Any donation, no matter the size, can make a positive impact. Thank you - Greg

A quick update. Fortunately klong Toei is now getting random proactive testing but as it has 100,000 to 120,000 residents they can only test some.  Ironically, you have to be selected by door to door.  Their are other slum areas we have gotten the word out on as well. Khong Khem Landfill, Onnut soi 88 slum area and Ratchada soi 36 slums that if anyone needs testing, we're here to help. Thank you for all those that have donated.  Fortunately we had zero covid cases yesterday but as were at the early stages of this crisis, it's far from over.  The slum area is a gas can ready to explode.  We are ready to do our best to avoid that.  Saturday we will be providing 500 slum residents in Klong Toei 2500 kilos of rice, 5,000 eggs, 1,000 cans of fish, 1,000 cookies, milk for the children.

A sincere thank you to all that have donated.

feel free to join us from 4 pm to 6 pm.

I have been to Klong Toei and felt safe and welcome, like everywhere I've been to in Thailand. They didn't start Covid-19; common humanity dictates they should be tested if they display the symptoms.
